Foods to avoid

Lets start with a list of known ones, and I'll add new things as I discover them.

Lemons
Limes
Kiwis
Raw onions and leeks.
Raw spring onions
Strawberries 
Raspberries
Pineapple
Chillies
Tomatoes 
Caffeine
Vinegars
Excessive salt
Some apples, ie cox if very tart.
Grapes
Red fruit and veg.
Raw garlic
Dark chocolate 
Ginger

As a rule of thumb I avoid:
1. All citrus,and strongly acidic foods, such as vinegar. 
2. A lot of very salty foods and those with strong flavouring also trigger a reaction in my face, that means things like salt and vinegar crisps, and a lot of low calorie snacks like the snack a jack rice crackers.
3.Yeasty products also affect me, making my face feel hot and look very flushed. It's very uncomfortable. I can't use 'nutritional yeast flakes' and some ready made soups with yeasty stocks. I use kallo products with low yeast and salt content and make my own soups.
